      • Outlook 2016 - Attach SharePoint File permissions

        When a user uses the "Attach File" in Outlook 2016 and chooses a file on SharePoint online they are asked to allow recipients edit or view to the file. Can we have SharePoint check the permissions of the recipient rather than the sender? Currently if the sender does not have rights to make security changes to a Site, List or Library the sender gets and email with the following:

        "You don't have permission to give others access to this file.
        The message was sent, but the following people might not be able to access the attachment:"

        Sender will get this…

        • Bring back the Document Information Panel

          Please bring back the Document Information Panel. Customers are finding it harder and the risk of error exacerbated by removal of this tool. It has meant that the process now takes longer when integrating between Office and SharePoint with metadata entry. Its posing a real issue for many SharePoint developers. The workaround provided does not make the process easier at all.

          • PowerBI and Sharepoint Image Permission Integration

            When using a SharePoint Online list as a data source in PowerBI, image links do not work unless you are revealing the PowerBI dashboard inside a SharePoint page. (for more details, see links to PowerBI community discussions at the bottom of this post)

            The only way to make them work today is to change the permissions individually, at an item-level, for every linked image. This is not practical.

            Essentially, my dashboard works within SharePoint, but not PowerBI natively, and I am not able to consider extending it to other products such as Cortana.

            I could go through all sorts of…

            • Prevent users from starting blogs

              Admins in schools really need this feature. For every student that is curious and hits the button "new post" within the blog feature of Delve automatically a blogsite is created and even if nothing is written in there these blogs are recommended within the Sharepoint Startpage. For those of you already suffering from this, here is a link to delete these posts, so that these sites also dissapear from the Sharepoint Startpage:
              https://contoso.sharepoint.com/portal/personal/username/_layouts/15/deleteweb.aspx

              There should be an option to simply prevent users from blogging beforehand!

              • Allow more embed types beyond iframes

                I wanted to embed some yelp reviews onto our new Communications Sharepoint site, but the embed web part will only allow iframe embeds. The yelp embed code comes in the form of a span tag.
                It would be nice if the embed feature allowed more flexibility than just iframe.

                • Design flaw with external sharing (guest users) and mail routing in Exchange Online

                  We have noticed a design issue in O365 with External sharing (guest users) and SMTP.
                  This has happened now many times with few different organizations.

                  Have discussed this with MS Technical Support and is currently Working As Designed - requesting change for this design.

                  Scenario goes like this:
                  1. our O365 users share files/data with External users, invite them with their email address firstname.lastname@foo.bar
                  2. invited users will log in to O365 to gain access, External User account is created and that object is used when routing email messages sent from our O365.
                  3a) if external users Exchange UPN is…

                  • Enable Office apps' site list to auto update

                    Currently when a user logs into the Office apps using an Office 365 account, they can see the organisation's main site listed within File > Open > Sites - [organisation name]

                    Please can you add the ability for this list to automatically add any new sites that are made available to the user to this list. e.g. Currently, I have created a new site but the user has to manually enter that URL into the Open or Save boxes to access. This is not ideal (users will just not use the site) so a way to automate these site lists…

                        • Microsoft Project .mpp files behavior

                          Is it possible to get following behavior when clicking an .mpp file in sharepoint online?
                          - Open a webviewer for Project files (not possible right now)
                          - just download the file.

                          Now the behavior is by design as follows:
                          - you search for a file .mpp, click on it and a form opens instead of download directly.

                          Data from Service Request 616112992836868:
                          The file search for filename.mpp gives the search result in the form of link (form) on SharePoint search instead of directly file extension like other excel or document files on SharePoint search.

                            • A mechanism for mapping drives to SharePoint that does not rely on Internet Explorer

                              We are frustrated by the fact that we are forced to use Internet Explorer as a way to invoke WebDAV to map network drives. The prerequisites of having to be logged into SharePoint via IE11 prior to mapping or accessing a mapped drive to SharePoint is clumsy and unreliable. It also requires too much dependence on the user to be mindful of these prerequisites. We would expect, in the days of Win10, that there is a more direct linkage between the OS and SharePoint so we don't have to rely on the increasingly problematic IE11 which is barely supported by…

                                  • Bug Fix: SharePoint Store: Sort by Rating

                                    When sorting the SharePoint Store by ratings, it sorts by the NUMBER of ratings, not the ACTUAL rating.

                                    So, for example, the "All" bucket currently displays apps with the following rating: 2, 5, 5, 5, 4, 2, 5, 3, 5. If, however, you look at the NUMBER of ratings, they are sorted by: 41, 37, 35, 32, 32, 30, 28, 28, 27.

                                    I can understand factoring the number of ratings into the sort order. After all, an app with one five star rating isn't particularly qualified. But the expectation when I sort by ratings is that I'm going to see…

                                    • Bug Fix: SharePoint Store: Searching for Apps

                                      When searching the SharePoint Store for apps, the default sort order (by relevance) is not very intuitive, especially when searching for otherwise common words.

                                      For example, searching for "Document Library" returns two pages of app results without "Document Library" in the title (though, presumably, they have these words in the description or other metadata).

                                      As another example, one might think that searching for "List Carousel" would have the app named "List Carousel" displayed first. Instead, it's fourth, after "Corporate News App", "Apptex Designer", and "Image Carousel".

                                      I don't doubt that these are relevant results in each instance. But it'd be…

                                          Dear Monali,

                                          Thanks for all you do – I appreciate your always consistent follow-up. This is not a support issue, it’s a marketing and technology issue. Microsoft has got to realize that we do not live in a Microsoft world, we need to send documents in different formats. Like in all things MS will eventually fix it and get it right, at least I hope so. But in the interim this issue continues to frustrate loyal MS customers like myself. I am trying to roll out at least 200K users to MS 365 Exchange and Office 201X and then going…
